Pitch black with a 1cm bubbly mocha head with low retention. Spotty lacing. 

Nose immediately starts off with bright roasted coffee beans and pretty much finishes with roasted coffee beans. A touch of oats and dark chocolate in there as well. 

Flavor again starts off with roasted buttery coffee beans and transitions into a nice brown sugar oatmeal and dark chocolate character with a touch or bitter espresso. There's a lovely maple-brown sugar-like aftertaste. 

Mouthfeel is just under full bodied, creamy and velvety. Medium carbonation. 

Overall this is a fantastic oatmeal stout! Its kind of a slightly milder version od CBS with more coffee. Good nose. Amazing flavor with a perfect mouthfeel for what it is. I could drink this every day.

Served on tap at The Pony Bar in New York, NY

A: Pours jet black with a thing light tan head. The head reduces quickly to a thin layer of bubbles at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Smells of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts. There is some bitterness in the aroma and a decent amount of complexity.

T: Roasted malts up front with slight amounts of sweetness, followed by hints of chocolate and coffee, and finishes with a coffee bitterness.

M: Medium to full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: Quite easy to drink and hides the presence of the alcohol. Good complexity but pales in comparison after just having KBS - and seems slightly out of balance with the sweet and bitter. Definitely a beer to get again.

Serving type: on-tap
